We had an inside cabin and were surprised how nice it was. It was more spacious than we expected. We even had a sofa in our cabin. The shower was larger than other ships inside cabins. No annoying shower curtain but 2 plexiglass sliding doors. Nice TV that was on a swivel so you could watch it on the couch or in the bed. It had a remote control that offered interactive activities. The sleep timer did not work . The choice of regular TV programs was ridiculous. They had 2 Broke Girls, The Big Bang Theory and The Person of Interest. Those shows are fine but they showed the same episodes over and over again on the same day and then the rest of the 5 days also had the same episodes repeated over and over again. The beds were another story. The mattresses were so thin it was like sleeping on the floor. Our cabin steward, Wayan, tried his best to make it softer but nothing helped. Wayan said he checked and they did not have any spare mattresses to replace it with but he would try to add some padding. Even after adding 5 layers of padding it still felt like we were sleeping on the floor. Finally on the 4th day of the cruise they tried adding a bed board but it made it even harder. At last they found another thin mattress to add to the 5 layers of padding. This finally helped. The front desk manager and the Hotel Manager apologized for our discomfort but did nothing at all to compensate us for the problem. Royal Caribbean needs to think about replacing their mattresses with good quality pillow top mattresses. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was ideally situated being just one floor above the promenade deck and 2 floors below the main restaurant. I am a solo traveller and my cabin was comfortable and felt safe at all times. My cabin steward Howard always kept nice and entertained me by leaving lovely towel animals and always had a kind word to say whenever you passed him. Read entire member review >>
Worst cabin we have ever had there were some sort pressure valves in the ceiling going of 24/7 did not get a decent night sleep for the whole 14 days told it was to do with the spa we were NOWHERE near the spa then told they did not know what it was and there was nothing they could do.

We had a Virtual Balcony in this room which was very good, plenty of space for our clothes and the room was kept clean and tidy. My father-in-law stayed in stateroom 9200 on deck 10 which had an ocean view and was a family room which was lovely. Read entire member review >>
Tidied but not hoovered for whole trip. Marks on mirror for 4 days. would remove drinks and food that we left in our cabin for return from a trip as the restaurant would be closed when we got back. Read entire member review >>
We always select a inside cabin. It was small but liveable. Since we only use it for sleeping it is more than adequate for our needs. Our cabin was clean and well kept by our steward. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was small but after separating the beds I was able to get around the bed without my knee hitting the desk. Cabin location was great we had to walk a mile to get a meal so at least we got our exercise every day. Read entire member review >>
We tried one of the “Virtual Balcony” staterooms that were added earlier this year. We ended up enjoying it much more than we thought that we would. It’s basically a vary large HDTV stood up on edge. The image shown is from an aft-facing camera from the stern of the ship. This is the only view available. There is a remote control that is for power on/off, volume up/down, mute. At night we left the system on as we drifted off to the white noise of the sea. Very restful. Read entire member review >>
Our room was very close to the elevators which was nice. The coffee tables have been removed for safety reasons which is probably good. We always had to move ours out of the way so as not to kill ourselves in the dark. We certainly had one of the best room stewards, Vernon Friday. Read entire member review >>
I was traveling by myself, so my cabin was fine for me. I had plenty of closet and drawer space. Everything functioned properly and the cabin attendant did an excellent job of maintaining the cabin. My one complaint was that the safe was too small. I travel with several cameras and the safe was smaller than I have encountered on other cruises - not a major problem. My cabin had one of RC's new Virtual Balcony's. This was a floor to ceiling video screen that was about 3 feet wide. There was a video camera mounted on the stern of the ship which gave a live feed to my "balcony". It was pretty neat. I kept thinking I was looking out a window. Read entire member review >>
Really was comfortable for two women. Plenty of closet space and the location was out of the way and very quiet. It really could use a flat screen television to save space and there were some problems with the light above the bed area, but other than that, it was comfortable and clean and quiet.

More than enough space for the 3 of us , Pullman bed comes down from the ceiling. Curtains split the bedroom from the living room area which is a nice touch. Sofa and coffee table and ample drawer space. Wardrobe a wee bit small to fit all the clothes and the empty suitcases in but managed. Bathroom small as to be expected. Shower had a door not a curtain and was bigger than thought it might be. Only missed not having a window first thing in the morning when deciding what to wear that day, but wouldn't stop me taking an inside room again. Read entire member review >>
Small closet in awkward place, not much storage. With the beds pushed together, there is almost no room to get around the end of the bed due to furniture being right up against the end of the bed. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8381 was a nice interior cabin. Very quiet. The location at the very aft of the ship was not ideal, because we had to walk quite aways to get to and from the elevators. Read entire member review >>
We are never in our room so we always book an inside cabin. If you get along with your room mate they are certainly big enough and very well appointed. Everything worked well and there is more than enough closet and storage space. C-Paps are no problem, just bring like a 15' extension cord. Beds are very comfy and they give you a bunch of pillows.
